Digital Equipment Corporation's first foray into what was to become the Light's Out Datacenter realm. Digital created DECalert in the '80s as a means to manage a datacenter without having to be physically present. Topic: Digital Equipment Corporation Lights-Out Datacenter
The NOP SIG is dedicated to the retention, restoration and running of Nostalgic, Obsolute Products (NOP's). Eight generations of PDP-8 computer architecture have come between the PDP-8 of 1965 and the DECmate III of 1985. The PDP-8 was the original minicomputer that set DEC on the road to fame and fortune. It has been re-implemented every few years in newer technology - 1965 - PDP8 1968 - PDP8/I 1970 - PDP8/E 1974 - PDP8/A 1977 - VT78 1980 - DECmate I 1982 - DECmate II 1985 - DECmate III This...

The DECUS NOP SIG is dedicated to the retention, restoration and running of Nostalgic Obsolete Products. (NOP's).The poster was made by the DECUS NOP SIG to mark the 20th anniversary of the PDP-11 in 1990.The poster shows three generations of the PDP-11.On the right are two of the original PDP-11/20 computers mounted in the same cabinet. The PDP-11/20 was released in 1970. These units were used by the CSIRO to control an X-RAY diffractometer. In front is an ASR-33 teletype.In the middle...

The DECUS NOP SIG is dedicated to the retention, restoration and running of Nostalgic Obsolete Products. (NOP's).After it was launched in October 1977, the VAX-11 / 780 quickly became the performance standard against which all following computers were measured. The VAX-11 / 780 was rated as one VUP (VAX Units of Performance).Even today, when the industry uses a benchmark known as SPECmarks, (issued by the Systems Performance Evaluation Co-operative), the VAX-11 / 780 is the reference point...

The DECUS NOP SIG is dedicated to the retention, restoration and running of Nostalgic Obsolete Products. (NOP's). Twenty one years of Unix* software is represented here, between the PDP-7 of 1967 and the VAXstation 2000 of 1988. The PDP-7 was the original computer on which Ritchie and Thompson wrote the UNIX* operating system at Bell Labs in 1967. The VAXstation 2000 sitting on teh butterfly table of teh PDP-7 is running the Ultrix operating system. It is showing 12 windows simultaneously. This...

The VAX 9000 was the fastest and most expensive VAX and was able to compete not only as a superminicomputer or large important enterprise who could afford it, but also competed against IBMs mainframes. It featured ECL circuitry (Emitter Coupled Logic) which gave it great speed and also made it expensive. Today the machines are extremely rare. VAX 9000 Sales Video from 12/29/1991. Content about 7 minutes. Runs about 12:27. From original d|i|g|i|t|a|l corporate NTSC VHS tape. &c1991 Digital...

Bruce Lane - "The Care and Feeding of MicroVAXen"Vintage Computer Festival 1.0Sunday, October 26th, 1997The last few minutes were not recorded (presumably less than 10 minutes.)Bruce Lane has been working with electronics ever since he was old enough to start pulling things apart. His first exposure to computers was in 1978 and it didn't take him long to develop a passion for them. He is currently employed at Boeing's Information, Space & Defense Systems group as a Systems...

How and why Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) started to make minicomputer in the early 1960's. DEC was already making digital modules for science and industrial use. These consisted of the usual AND , OR , NOR, NAND , NOT gates and various filp-flops. Other special modules were made for instrumentation as well. Having all this digital capability some of the engineers wanted to use the modules to make a computer. Management resisted this for fear of competition from big Blue (IBM). ...
